RAM Question Ok so i have ram currently installed and functional (2 2gb sticks) which i believe run at 1.8v I want to but more ram but what i am looking at getting runs at 2.2v. My particular mobo runs my ram at a auto configure option which is currently enabled. My question is can i use both sets of ram at the same time smoothly or will i have to buy ram with the same specs? (They are both ddr2 800 pc 2700 or whatever it is my comp uses, just different timing and voltage)

I suggest getting all of the same specs.
Getting this other RAM will still work, it is recommended you get the exact same specs for all of the RAM

Hope this helps

Have a great day

If you run them together both  will run at the one with the lowest speed and timing of either.

SOURCE: why cant i get my

Be sure to check which slots you are putting them in, stay within the same colors as to which needs to be put in.

This may be why, looks like your using DDR2
DDR2 1066MHz DIMMs work only on the black slots for one DIMM per channel. Ensure to install the DDR2 1066MHz DIMMs ONLY on the BLACK slots!

This may be the case for all speeds of DDR2

Can I add more RAM to my Averatec All-In=One A2?


Hey Nella Coffey

Unfortunately, more RAM cannot be installed due the limit of Slots available. However, you may be able to upgrade the current RAM modules and replace them. It appears it has 2048mb (2GB) of RAM which is possible split into two 1GB sticks. You "may" be able to upgrade to 4GB (split into two 2GB sticks). This is the current set up for the computer: 2048MB (4096MB max) SDRAM ' Memory Slots available for Upgrade: 0 ' Maximum RAM per available slot: 2048MB


Good Luck

Ram compatibilty


Yes you can but the higher spec DDR2/800 RAM will run at at lower speed same as the DDR2/ 667 RAM.
When you install the DDR2/800 RAM and the BIOS only detects 1Gb of RAM then this RAM is not compatible with the 1st RAM module. In this case use RAM module that is the same make and speed as the original RAM module.

Can I install more than 512mb of memory on a Presario s5300nx. I actually want to do 2gb or more. If so, how can i safely do it w/o messing up my computer. Thank you.


> I want to do 2GB or more.

As the Rolling Stones sang, "you can't always get what you want".

See: http://www.memorystock.com/ram/CompaqPresarios5300nxRAM.html

which states that your motherboard has 2 RAM slots, with a maximum of 512MB per slot.

So, how many RAM slots currently are empty, and how much RAM is installed?

If you currently have 2 sticks, at 256MB/stick, you will need to remove both sticks, and install two new sticks.

If you currently have 512MB of RAM, and one empty slot, then that web-page describes the exact type of RAM that you can insert into that empty slot.

I have a gateway GT5228, with no ram in it will the gateway run on one stick of ram? 1 gig or no matter what I have to put 2 sticks in???


Depends on the type of RAM it is. If it's "dual-RAM" then you need both sticks. If not then 1 stick will work fine.

Can i mix my RAM?


You can surely use one stick of 512 and other of 256. Just make sure you are not mixing a DDR with DDR 2.
Please get back for any further clarification

I currently have just 256mps of memory ram on my dell dimension 2400. i want to upgrade. my manual says the maxium is 1024 mbs. can i install 1gb of ram or should i get 512 mbs? i have windows xp os. thank...


1024 is 1 gig of ram. Some older motherboards require you to put in ram in pairs but I don't think your system is one of those but if you have manual or can download manual you should check to be sure. If you don't need a pair then yes you can remove the 256 meg stick and add a 1 gig stick or you can put in 2 512 meg sticks. Should run a lot better as windows recommends at least 512 megs of ram.

Error message after installing memory ram upgrade.....


The memory appears to be the right kind.

Try installing just one 1GB module, and run the diagnostics (press F12 at boot time and select diagnostics).

Good luck!

Memory upgrade


There is many things that can happen with RAM that end up with this issue.

First I'd try removing the 256 and just place the 512mb stick into the first slot and see if that works. If it doesn't there's one of three problems occuring.

Incompatible RAM (which may fit and lock in place but still not meet the requirements systems BIOS, so it will not function)

Oversized RAM Stick (some models will only use single sided sticks of ram, where most of the newer sticks are double sided. This can actually cause problems like this and even sometimes work but only show half of the ram on that stick)

Dead Ram (It's possible and I've had it happen a few times, that you could have a dead stick of RAM. If the 512 stick works alone without the 256 in there; the the problem lies elsewhere.)

Each manufacturer has different specifications on their systems and the ram that they can use. Believe it or not, one laptop I had would only work if you had two matching sticks of RAM in the slots. So, I could use the two 256mb sticks together; but I couldn't use a 512 and a 256. I couldn't run the 1gb stick and a 256 or a 512 stick. It had to be two matching sizes. So, make absolutely sure you have a compatible stick of ram for the laptop (I suggest calling HP/Compaq and asking them if it is the correct chip as you can never be too sure). If it still will not work, then either the laptop won't support all of the 768mb, or you have a dead stick.

Try these things and see what happens. If you still have a problem, by all means, ask away. :)

Ram upgrade


Initial blue screen of death is probably caused by the ram.
install original ram and see if everything is ok, next install 1 of your upgrade sticks, reboot and see what happens, if it fails use the other stick, if it still fails, sell those on e-bay and run a scan from crucial.com and see what is compatible.
